Pack your bags and get going!
We all love the winters in Delhi. The winter season lets us be at peace with everything and brings around a sort of a calmness about the day.
Basking in the sun during the cold washes over a sensation that is unmatched by many others. However, the winters can often be very harsh and sometimes, we just need a break from it. If you're looking to plan your next winter trip then you're at the right place because we're telling you some of the best places that offer a mildly summery feel about them.
To break free from the bleakness of the everyday winter cold, head over to Alwar, which is a small little town in the desert state of Rajasthan. The state itself doesn't see very harsh winters, and often, the days are rather sultry. The sun is just pleasant enough to make your days comfortable so that you're in that sweet temperature spot where it's all perfect.
Though a trip here won't exactly provide you with a relief from Delhi's intense winter, you still get to be in a cleaner, greener and a better environment. What's more is that the inner wildlife lover in you can also catch a break here. Birds from all sorts of species migrate here during the winters and this could be a great way to spend your days. Seeing nature bloom in all it's glory during the winters really hits the soft spot within you.
Some of you may look at this option as a rather far fetched one, but it is surely worth a shot. During the winters, tourists usually flock to seaside places, namely Goa, and in turn, the entire coastal state is overrun by tourists. Andaman and Nicobar Islands are a bit isolated in that respect and offer open beaches with views of the sparkling blue sea. The mostly sunny days at the sandy beaches is just perfect for relaxing and lazing around in the island. In fact, this is one of those places that just washes your troubles away.
Another city from the Desert State of India makes its way into our list, simply because it doesn't get insanely cold here. The town itself doesn't have much to offer apart from an essence of cultural vibrance and deep rooted heritage. In fact, if you're planning to take a road trip along Rajasthan this winter, then Pushkar is a place that must be on your list.
If you want to experience pure, unadulterated winter, in one of the most fantastic settings, then head over to Shillong, also known as the Scotland of India. The sunny and clear days in the mountains have an unmatched charm of their own. The sunny winter days often give you spectacular and unparalleled views, which are hard to get out of your mind. Apart from that, you also get to stay away from thick city smog and live with your head above the clouds, quite literally.
Winters in Delhi are never as you expect them to be. They're often harsh and unforgiving, while at times, they can be beautiful in their own way. For staunch Delhiites however, getting out during the winters is just as important as it is in the summers. So what are you waiting for, head over to any one of these places this winter season and return with tales of adventure!
